CGTrader Designer Spotlight: Paulo Ranieri

Who is Paulo Ranieri?

I am from Brazil and graduated from the School of Industrial Design. My career began in 2005, when I was creating and developing various products during different internships. In 2008, I was given the chance to work with jewelry design, and I have not stopped ever since. Working for big companies in the retail market and factories helped me increase my abilities, and after 11 years working inside companies, I started to work by myself, providing different services to jewelry companies.

Who is Tuğrul Şenyurt?

I am Tuğrul Şenyurt, more known as 3DTGRL on CGTrader. I am a 42 year old architect from Turkey. I have been doing this job for 16 years. I started 3D modeling when I was at university. In those days I was learning how to use 3Ds Max and a few similar softwares. 3D modeling has been very beneficial both in my student life and my professional career as it helped to strengthen my design skills and overall knowledge.

Here are the winners of 2 different categories we had for this challenge: YAHAHA Special Awards (Judged by Yahaha Team) and The best 3D Fantasy Model (Judged by CGTrader Team).

Congratulations to everyone and thank you for your active participation!
